Due to its amazing Speed that allows it to outspeed the likes of Noivern, Crobat, and Aerodactyl, high base Attack, good coverage, and access to Flip Turn, Barraskewda is a good option as an Offensive Pivot in the current metagame. However, due to its frailness and the fact that it's still forced out by First Impression Golisopod and Choice Scarf users such as Mienshao and Xurkitree, Barraskewda faces difficulty to sweep opposing teams. Ice Fang is a coverage move that enables Barraskewda to KO Noivern and hit Grass-types such as Roserade and Dhelmise super effectively. Psychic Fangs is also an option that enables Barraskewda to KO Roserade, hit Vileplume and Crobat harder, and remove screens. Close Combat is Barraskewda's strongest coverage move helping it deal with Cobalion more easily and weaken Gastrodon, Seismitoad, and Volcanion, which can block Flip Turn with their abilities. Double-Edge can also be used over Psychic Fangs/Ice Fang since it's Barraskewda's best move against Golisopod, but due to the lack of recoil the other moves are preferable most of the time. Heavy-Duty Boots gives Barraskewda more opportunities to switch-in, helping it pressure the opposing team more easily. Jolly Nature allows Barraskewda to outspeed Noivern, Crobat, and Aerodactyl, as well as speed tie with an opposing Barraskewda. Adamant Nature can be used in rain teams, where Barraskewda can also use Choice Band to maximize its damage and act more as a wallbreaker.

Barraskewda has a hard time dealing with bulky Water-types such as Gastrodon, thus Grass-types such as Roserade are good teammates. However, it is also annoyed by Volcanion, which Grass-types don't switch into, thus Noivern and Assault Vest Reuniclus make for good partners since they check Volcanion, while Noivern can bring Barraskewda in with U-turn and Reuniclus can help Barraskewda wear down opposing walls with Future Sight or removing items with Knock Off. Fire-type wallbreakers such as Salazzle, Chandelure, and Darmanitan can help Barraskewda pressure opposing water-types and appreciate Barraskewda baiting in Grass-types then switching out with Flip Turn. Other pivots such as Raikou, Mienshao, Noivern, and Incineroar are good options for teammates. Incineroar, in particular, has Knock Off and Toxic to help Barraskewda weaken its checks. Barraskewda also love Golisopod and Roserade's spikes support along Knock Off users such as Mienshao, Incineroar, and Assault Vest Reuniclus. Knock Off suport can also potentially remove opposing Choice Scarf, making it possible for Barraskewda to clean.

Due to its amazing Speed that allows it to outspeed the likes of Noivern, Crobat, and Aerodactyl, high base Attack, good coverage, and access to Flip Turn, Barraskewda is a good option as an Offensive Pivot in the current metagame. [mention that it fails to break thru bulky waters as a downside] Ice Fang is a coverage move that enables Barraskewda to KO Noivern and Flygon, while and hit hitting Grass-types such as Roserade and Dhelmise super effectively. Close Combat is Barraskewda's strongest coverage move helping it deal with Zarude more easily and weaken Gastrodon, Seismitoad, and Volcanion, which can block Flip Turn with their abilities. Heavy-Duty Boots gives Barraskewda more opprtunities [typo] to switch-in pivot around, [ It cant switching for jack bc of its shit defense] helping it pressure the opposing team more easily. Jolly Nature allows Barraskewda to outspeed Noivern, Crobat, and Aerodactyl, as well as speed tie with an opposing Barraskewda. Adamant Nature can be used in rain teams, where Barraskewda can also use Choice Band to maximize its damage and act more as a wallbreaker.
Mention psychic fangs bc its otherwise a set up fodder vs toxicroak.
Mention how it can face comp vs cloyster if its not in rain bc cloyster has higher defensive stats and more sweeping potential bc of shell smash.

Barraskewda has a hard time dealing with bulky Water-types, thus Grass-types such as Roserade and Zarude are good teammates. Fire-type wallbreakers such as Salazzle, Chandelure, and Darmanitan can help Barraskewda pressure opposing water-types [with what??] and appreciate Barraskewda baiting in Grass-types then switching out with Flip Turn. Other pivots such as Raikou, Mienshao, Noivern, Zarude, and Incineroar are good options for teammates. Incineroar, in particular, has Knock Off and Toxic to help Barraskewda weaken its checks [which ones??].
Mention Rain teammates
Mention how it needs ground-type teammates that can check xurk, tox, and raikou such as steelix (non rain) or seismitoad(on rain).

Due to With its amazing Speed that allows itself to outspeed the likes of Noivern, Crobat, and Aerodactyl, having a high base Attack, good coverage, and access to Flip Turn,(RC) makes Barraskewda is a good option as an Offensive Pivot in the this current metagame. However, due to its frailness low Defense,(AC) and the fact that it's still gets forced out outsped (I'm not 100% sure what you mean by "forced out", so I'm replacing it with "outsped" since it fits in with the Choice Scarf users coming up.)by First Impression Golisopod,(AC) and as well as Choice Scarf users such as Mienshao and Xurkitree, Barraskewda faces difficulty trying to sweep opposing teams. Ice Fang is a good coverage move that enables Barraskewda allows itself to OHKO Noivern,(AC) and be able to hit Grass-types such as Roserade and Dhelmise super effectively. Psychic Fangs is also an option that enables allows Barraskewda to OHKO(I'm not sure if it does OHKO Roserade but i'll add it in for good mesure) Roserade, and can hit Vileplume,(AC) and Crobat harder, and can remove screens. Close Combat is Barraskewda's strongest coverage move helping it deal with Cobalion more easily and weaken Gastrodon, Seismitoad, and Volcanion, which can block Flip Turn with their Storm Drain,(AC) and Water Absorb abilities respectively. Double-Edge can also be used over Psychic Fangs/Ice Fang since it's Barraskewda's best move against Golisopod, but due to the lack of recoil the other moves are preferable most of the time. Heavy-Duty Boots gives Barraskewda more opportunities to switch-in, helping it pressure the opposing team more easily. Jolly Nature allows Barraskewda to outspeed Noivern, Crobat, and Aerodactyl, as well as having a speed tie with an opposing Barraskewda. Adamant Nature can be used in rain teams, where Barraskewda can also use Choice Band to maximize its damage and act more as a wallbreaker.

Barraskewda has a hard time dealing with bulky Water-types such as Gastrodon, thus Grass-types such as Roserade are make for good teammates. However, it is also annoyed by Volcanion,(RC) which Grass-types don't switch into, thus Noivern and Assault Vest Reuniclus make for good partners since they check Volcanion, while Noivern can bring Barraskewda in with U-turn and Reuniclus can help Barraskewda wear down opposing walls with Future Sight or removing items with Knock Off. Fire-type wallbreakers such as Salazzle, Chandelure, and Darmanitan,(AC) can help Barraskewda pressure opposing wWater-types and appreciate Barraskewda baiting in Grass-types then switching out with Flip Turn. Other pivots such as Raikou, Mienshao, Noivern, and Incineroar are good options for teammates. Incineroar,(RC) in particular,(RC) has Knock Off,(AC) and Toxic to help Barraskewda weaken its checks. Barraskewda also love to have Golisopod,(AC) and Roserade's spikes support along Knock Off users such as Mienshao, Incineroar,(RC)(You mentioned Incineroar having Knock Off in the previous line, in my opinion, you shouldn't mention it again this quickly) and Assault Vest Reuniclus. Knock Off suport support can also potentially remove opposing teams Choice Scarf users, making it possible for Barraskewda to clean outspeed them.
